I'm back in my "learn all I can about diabetes" phase, and I want to know what this is. Are they two different things? What are the repercussions of having a fatty or leaky liver? How is it treated?Continue

The story of the Zombie Podcolalypse

Holy cow. Last week when my pod was priming I got a screamer. It would not stop. I stuck it in the freezer. Last night, I took it out of the freezer, stuck it in my purse to remember to call Insulet when I got to work today.I changed my pod last night about 8:00 PM.At 4AM, I was jerked awake by the sound of an alarm. I stumbled into the bathroom and checked the pod. It looked fine. Looked at my PDM and there was a "?" at the top.The alarm was blaring. I deactivated the pod and removed it. Put…See More

I have to wait a little more than a day before I can finally dive in. So what questions do I need to ask the day of the training? For starters, I don't really know how much I need to bolus for meals.…

In May of 2000, I heard about the symptoms of a bad thyroid, so I called my doc and asked for a checkup. A few days later I received a voicemail on Saturday, and was told, "You don't have anything wrong with your thyroid, but you are diabetic. Call the office on Tuesday if you would like to discuss this."

Well, first of all, this was unprofessional and hurtful and so inappropriate. I was at a Memorial Weekend rodeo with my kids, and had no idea what to do. Until I could see a doctor, I…
